4 Operating Modes
The Discovery 3300--which runs on two 9-volt batteries--is designed for easy handling, with a lightweight, ergonomic build that's comfortable for hours on end. The detector boasts four operating modes controlled by an intuitive touchpad. Motion All-Metal mode offers a single tone that detects all types of metal. Progressive Discrimination mode, by contrast, uses a single tone to automatically eliminate iron and other unwanted metals. The Notch mode adds further versatility to the detecting process, with the ability to manually eliminate, or “notch out,” a select range of items. And if you’re looking for deep targets, you can activate the Pinpoint mode, which searches for targets while the detector is completely still.
Bounty Hunter equips all its metal detectors with a preset ground balance that neutralizes the response to mineral content in the ground. As a result, the Discovery 3300 can distinguish between iron in the ground and valuable metals. The detector further distinguishes good finds from bad with a one-touch Zap button, which immediately eliminates unwanted metals, and a sensitivity control that reduces electromagnetic interference. It’s in the accuracy department that the Discovery 3300 really shines, however. The detector includes a digital 11-segment probable target ID that identifies a wide range of targets, along with a four-tone audio feedback. The unit also offers a digital probable coin depth indicator that determines how deep a target is buried, making it easier to dig up.
In addition, the Discovery 3300 searches deeper than many other detectors thanks to the 8-inch open coil design, which searches to 8 inches for coin-size objects and 3 feet for larger objects. The coil and stem are even waterproof, so you can submerge them when searching for treasure in damp grass or shallow water.
To ensure privacy, the detector comes equipped with a ¼-inch headphone jack compatible with most headphones. Other features include an easy-to-read LCD display, a low battery indicator, an adjustable-height design, a padded armrest, and a detector stand. The Discovery 3300 weighs 2.6 pounds and carries a five-year limited warranty.
